"After using Altura pro gel bib shorts for 800 miles i thought it was about time to try something a bit better as i plan to do longer rides. Whilst the old shorts had been okay,the quality and comfort of the Castelli is fantastic and although expensive they are much better and would never swap back. With lots of comments about poor sizing etc I took time to measure and using size guide found that they fit perfectly. I would say go a size bigger than your measurments as i was medium/large so brought large."
"After switching wheels i decided the tyres were the next mod. I had the original 25c's fitted and mainly changed due to looks but was greatly impressed by increase in speed due to less rolling resistance whilst still giving better grip. I have had my average pace raised by about 2 mph since fitting and grip is great also even in wet if your take care."
"After riding 800+ miles on standard saddle (Felt z95) I have decided on trying this after my mate said his was great. I have done around 60 miles on it so far and have noticed a big improvement in comfort and less chaffing. Early days still but think it was a wise choice,the gel is in just right places and shape of seat is much improved over standard."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit
"After trying cheaper socks i thought i would try these to see if you get what you pay for. This did turn out to be the case,although not huge gain they are more comfortable and cooler than others used. Will be buying again once worn out. Do check sizing as with all Castelli clothing you'll need to buy bigger."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

After reading reviews i thought i would try this and on next ride i was glad i did.Did further distance with no issues other than maybe should have used bit more both no sore bits which is main thing. Rather than putting up with it i would say get this and enjoy ride more."

Whilst some bars feel heavy or stodgy these go down very easily without feeling like you have eaten too much or the need to drink lots of water afterwards to wash it down. Easy to fit in jersey pocket and wide choice of flavours also helps and all that i have tried taste great"
"After making error of going out with summer socks on in just above freezing conditions and paying price with pain i thought better get these socks. When arrived i thought would still be too cold as appear very thin still but after using a few times my feet stayed warm with no issues at all. A must buy if riding in cold weather."
